Beneva (Quebec City), the largest mutual insurance company in Canada, and Guidewire (San Mateo, Calif.) have announced that Beneva successfully deployed Guidewire ClaimCenter on Guidewire Cloud to power and simplify its claims business and related IT operations, adapt quickly to changing supply chain conditions, and deliver insights to its advisors and policyholders. The company, created through the merger of SSQ and La Capitale (which have been Guidewire customers since 2010 and 2014, respectively) in 2020, migrated its self-managed ClaimCenter environment onto Guidewire Cloud, according to a Guidewire statement.
Guidewire reports that Beneva is currently migrating its self-managed Guidewire PolicyCenter and Guidewire BillingCenter environments onto Guidewire Cloud as well. With the completion of that project, the company will be a full Guidewire InsuranceSuite customer on Guidewire Cloud.
“The cloud, specifically the leading-edge Guidewire Cloud technology, is at the heart of our strategy to continue to be the largest mutual insurance company in Canada,” comments Éric Marcoux, VP, IT, Property and Casualty Insurance, Beneva. “With Guidewire Cloud, we realize business value more quickly by staying updated on Guidewire’s latest technology and innovations to enhance business processes and customer service.
“Thanks to our strong partnership with Guidewire, we finished the migration project on time and on budget,” Marcoux adds. The transition to ClaimCenter on Guidewire Cloud was seamlessly managed for our operations and staff and within the first 4 months of going live, we were already able to take a version update which lived up to the promise of updatability with limited system downtime and impact to our business.”
Promoting Mutualist Values
“We thank Beneva for entrusting Guidewire Cloud as the technology foundation for its business strategy and success now and into the future, beginning with the enhancement of its claims operations,” comments Christina Colby, Chief Customer Officer, Guidewire. “We congratulate Beneva on their successful ClaimCenter migration project onto Guidewire Cloud and look forward to helping the company remain the largest mutual insurance company in Canada and continue its mission of bringing together its mutualist values to protect people by providing caring insurance coverage that lets policyholders focus on what matters most.”
